I am so tired of life.


Hi there, you are very welcome to Ask Alex.     


Thank you for contacting us. We understand that it’s not always easy to share how we’re feeling, or what’s going on for us, but we also know how important it is to talk about it.  


Reaching out to Ask Alex is a huge step forward to seeking help. Have you spoken to your parents, another adult, or a friend about your feelings? Many people report being afraid to tell an adult about their feelings because they do not want to upset them. Sometimes we don’t understand where troubling feelings or thoughts are coming from and feel guilty for having them. Know that there’s nothing wrong with asking for help.  


Try to bring your feelings up in conversation and explain how you’re feeling. There may be another adult or friend in your life who you trust and may tell them.  It is ok to say you want help, it is not a sign of weakness, in fact asking for help is a sign of strength.
